Steven Clark did his part.

Florida State came from behind to defeat Auburn 34-31 on Monday night to win the BCS national title. But it wasn't for the fault of Clark, Auburn's punter and a graduate of Park Hill High School.

Clark punted six times in the championship game, placing five of the six inside the 20-yard line. Clark, who has been Auburn's punter for three seasons, also booted a punt 58 yards.

The Star’s Blair Kerkhoff wrote about Clark earlier this season.
